Matronit and other public transportation operations include joint packages.

What is a joint package? A joint package is a package which is sold and accepted by a number of operators. The joint packages for Matronit and other public transportation operators are inter-city travel packages and allow for performing the continuation of the trip on Matronit.

Where to purchase joint packages? These inter-city joint packages are purchased at the inter-city public transportation operators alone, and not at the purchase and loading station on the Matronit platforms. Purchasing an inter-city travel package (from an inter-city operator) may be on a paper ticket or via loading onto a Rav-Kav.

How to take advantage of the transfer trip? A transfer trip always refers to an inter-city trip. Therefore, if the transfer trip is performed (at the choice of the traveler) before the inter-city portion of the trip, it requires “punching” – meaning using – the inter-city trip package. Even if the traveler chooses to take advantage of the transfer trip after the inter-city portion of the trip, it also requires “punching”. Therefore, the right to a transfer trip entitles the option for a single entrance (not a regional transfer for 90 minutes) to a Matronit or bus within the Haifa region alone, before or after the inter-city trip. In any event, this right is offered only for packages loaded onto the Rav-Kav.

Please note – the inter-city trip portion and the transfer trip must be performed on the same day.
